Bellissima Dental Boutique now offers Invisalign® Fayette residents rely on for straight teeth and a dazzling smile – without traditional braces!
Imagine having a beautifully straight smile without the challenges and restrictions of traditional braces made of brackets and wires. Now imagine getting this advanced treatment from your local dentist in Fayette.
Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic trays to move teeth into their optimal position, gently and quickly. The team of dental professionals at Bellissima Dental Boutique will make a mold of your teeth that technicians will use to create your unique plastic trays; in some cases, we take x-rays too. We use a computer to develop your specific treatment plan.
A new set of plastic trays arrive about every two weeks. Simply throw away the old set of trays and start using the new ones. Each set will move your teeth in small increments until you achieve your perfect smile.
Invisalign® uses clear plastic trays that are nearly invisible, so virtually nobody will know you are wearing the teeth straightening trays.
Traditional braces feature metal brackets and wires that can easily bend or break when you eat certain foods. Invisalign clear aligners allows you to eat and drink anything you want – simply remove the aligners, enjoy your meal or beverage, and replace them when you have finished.
While it is safe to participate in most activities while wearing metal braces, especially if you wear a mouthguard, some sports present a higher risk for mouth injuries. You can get hit in the face with a ball, for example, or collide with another player. While these injuries are not life-threatening, they can be painful and costly.
Because Invisalign is removable, you may engage in activities that traditional wire braces may restrict. Simply take out the aligner and store it safely while you play.
Our dentist custom fits your aligner to fit precisely over your teeth while it applies gentle pressure to move your teeth into place. Since there are no wires and brackets to cause bleeding and discomfort, Invisalign is the most comfortable way to get an appealing smile.
Unlike braces that are difficult to brush and flow around, Invisalign trays are easy to care for – no special brushing technique or flossers needed. Simply remove the aligners, brush and floss as you normally do, and put the aligners back in your mouth.
Invisalign for adults takes about a year, while Invisalign for teens takes about 18 months.
Research shows that having a great smile can increase confidence, self-esteem, and overall appearance. This confidence can have unexpected benefits, such as greater professional opportunities and higher income levels.
Crooked teeth create nooks and crannies where decay-causing bacteria can hide; they can also be difficult to clean. Straightened teeth are easier to brush and floss, so they can reduce the likelihood of gingivitis and gum disease and lead to better lifelong oral health. After straightening, teeth are easier to clean and less vulnerable to chipping.
The first step is to stop by Bellissima Dental Boutique to find out if Invisalign will work for you. During this consultation, our Fayetteville dentist will assess your oral health and help you determine if Invisalign is the best approach for your specific situation.
2. Creating a personalized treatment plan
Our dental team will create a personalized Invisalign treatment plan that provides the best results in the shortest time. We will take detailed impressions and images of your teeth, and send them to the dental laboratory that makes your aligner trays.
When your new aligners are ready, we will walk you through the process of wearing them and caring for them. You can expect them to fit snugly and comfortably as you wear them for 20 to 22 hours a day.
4. Follow the schedule as detailed in your treatment plan
You will receive a new aligner about every two weeks. Each Invisalign aligner builds on the progress of the previous aligner to move your teeth into position – each aligner moves your teeth about 1/10 mm towards their final destination. To ensure everything is moving according to schedule, you’ll stop in to see our team at regular intervals throughout your treatment.
Smiling never felt so good! To help prevent your teeth from moving back to their original position and to maintain your smile, you may need to wear a retainer for a while.
